The new europe in the new iraq

The u.S. Government needs the support of the eastern european countries to give the occupying power an international appearance

Since one and a half month the gulf war ii is over. Since then, the death toll among coalition troops has slowly but steadily risen to one or two a day. More than 80 american soldiers have been killed and more than 300 injured by iraqi guerrilla groups. Coupled with the fact that no weapons of mass destruction have yet been found – and will never be found, some say – unease about iraq has grown more coarse in the u.S. And the u.K.

The u.S. Has therefore put prere on its allies in new europe to help control the new iraq. The desperation of the american government is so great that it is even willing to pay in part for these additional troops to ease the burden on coalition forces.

Image: sugeesh/cc by-sa-3.0

Abundance of water means life, prosperity and wealth. But lack of water means death. Due to heat and drought, water will be scarce in many parts of the world in summer 2018

In the french vosges mountains, the food company nestle and the local population are fighting over water – in southern spain, tourists are fighting with farmers over the precious liquid. Large parts of central and south africa, india and all of southeast asia suffer from water shortages. The un estimates that about one billion people do not have access to clean water; by 2050, the number is expected to double. The climate heating lets dig.

Bertelsmann foundation draws up strategy paper for political change of power in belarus

The bertelsmann foundation recently presented a strategy paper entitled "towards a coherent eu strategy for belarus" aims to bring about a regime change in lukashenko’s byelorussia. The paper was developed at a workshop in vilnius, lithuania, in early february, which was prepared in cooperation with the lithuanian ministry of auben. In addition to representatives of the belarusian opposition, representatives of the eu commission and the eu council participated as observers.

The ambitious paper has so far been overlooked in the german media; only a german-language internet newspaper published in russia mocked the ambitions of the gutersloh-based. By the way, the weibrussia paper is not unusual – since 1993, the bertelsmann foundation has already presented numerous strategy papers on eu aubenpolitik (see also bertelsmann): "nothing works without bertelsmann").

Ankara flexes its muscles

The deployment of turkish soldiers in iraq could further fuel the problems

Last tuesday, the turkish parliament gave the green light to the ankara government’s plan to send soldiers to iraq. 358 deputies voted in favor of the deployment, 183 deputies refused to give their consent. Accordingly, up to 12.000 turkish soldiers were to be deployed to iraq.

In early march 2003, the turkish parliament refused to provide logistical support for the war against iraq, much to the displeasure of the u.S. Government (a brief yes for the stationing of u.S. Troops in turkey). Even the plans of attack had to be changed because of this refusal. The u.S. Subsequently showed its annoyance with the turkish decision. Did the turkish parliament with its current decision make a kowtow before the usa and made apology for its defatist attitude, as some commentators suppose??

Netanyahu continues to rely on military operations

The shelling continues into the fifth day. Operation pillar of defense, the israeli army’s attacks on targets in gaza, continues, and israeli media today report a "drumfire of rockets", that hit israeli territory, fired from gaza. The image being conveyed places rough emphasis on balance: "more than 70 rockets have been fired at israel since saturday, and the idf has attacked a similar number of targets in the gaza strip."

How to continue? What is the political plan behind the military one?? What is the netanyahu government’s vision for the future of gaza?? The questions are getting louder by the day, and there is no non-military answer yet.

Tractor with electric motor and interchangeable battery presented

Tractor with electric motor and interchangeable battery presented

With the e70n, the us manufacturer solectrac has introduced a new electric tractor. It is a narrow gauge tractor whose electric motor comes to 70 hp. The e70n has a four-wheel drive and thanks to the 60 kwh battery in lithium iron phosphate technology should be possible up to eight hours of operation. However, this time depends on the actual use of the tractor dependent.

Interchangeable battery and prices

Because the battery is interchangeable, the tractor can be used continuously. For this it needs an additional battery package, which according to the us industry magazine electrek 18.000 us dollars (around 15.000 euro) costs. The tractor itself costs therefore 75.000 us dollars (around 63.000 euro) and can now be reserved for 1000 us dollars (around 800 euros). The state urges the acquisition of tractors financially, promises solectrac. Who ordered now, should get the tractor in the coming early year.

With the help of the electric tractors, farmers and experts should order the fields of art without local emissions, explains solectrac. In addition, the air pollution associated with the use of fossil fuels remain sparing the price fluctuations. The first three electric tractors have already gone to agricultural enterprises in northern california, according to electrek.

Palm springs (california / usa), 11. November 2013 – one year after the coupe now follows the convertible version of the vanquish, the "volant".
